Fancy some free lawn care tips ?
My hubby loves his garden and pre-kids we would spend a lot of money on it, making it beautiful. The lawn had to be just so and we would have pots and pots of gorgous flowers outside.
Now we don’t want any dodgy chemicals anywhere near the kids and we are on a major budget. In keeping with Bank Holiday tradition yesterday was a ‘mow the lawn’ day. Having been sadly neglected over winter it was time to get our garden summer ready.
I hate to say it but it looked pretty rubbish once mowed! A bit patchy jaded and faded. Rather than rush out an buy lawn care products ( as we would have done pre-kids/budget I trawled the net for advice. These 2 top tips came up again and again and I thought I’d share them with you. They are
ORGANIC, CHILD FRIENDLY and FREE!
Here you go…..
- Only water when really dry so the roots are well watered. If you just wet the top you will encourage roots at the surface which are much more vulnerable to drought damage.
- Cut regularly and just lop off the top 1/3 (it’s about developing a healthy root system apparently!)
Now I am sure there are plenty of useful products that are child friendly and cheap out there but hey free advice on free options works for me. Good luck and if you know any other (free/child friendly) lawn care tricks please share them!
